Philae lander has been found


Recommended Posts



Europe's comet lander Philae has been found.

The little robot is visible in new images downloaded from the Rosetta probe in orbit around the icy dirt-ball 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.

European Space Agency (Esa) officials say there is no doubt about the identification - "it's as clear as day", one told the BBC.

Philae was dropped on to the comet by Rosetta in 2014 but fell silent 60 hours later when its battery ran flat.

Although it relayed pictures and data about its location to Earth, the lander's actual resting place was a mystery.

The comet has become like a box of Cracker Jack, a prize in the middle, well sort of.
